For Dad

My Dad's 96th birthday is coming up so I decided to make this card and enter it into a couple of challenges: Paper Playtime's "For the Guys" and the sketch for Mojo Monday.  I chose to make a square one.

The paper is from MMI's Lost and Found DPS.  I liked the 4 and 16 on the side because Dad was born in the 4th month in 1916.  How coincidental.  ^_^ 
I knew I didn't want a bow on the small square, so what should I put?  I thought "we lock up our valuables" so I made a key from the Sophisticated cartridge.  I cut it in black, rubbed a VersaMark embossing stamp over part and embossed with silver powder.  Then I went over it again and embossed with UTEE.  It really looks a little like metal.  Dad doesn't say much but I think he'll like it.
